ANNOUNCEMENTS Thursday, October 30, 2014
Here is your Mi’kmaq History month fact of the day. The final of the seven sacred teachings, is Love, and is represented by the eagle. Look within yourself for Love. Love yourself, and then love others. You cannot love another until you first learn to love yourself. You must understand and live the other six Teachings before you can love. Love is worth working for. Love is worth waiting for. Love is the key to life.
